Making an early call

Pamushana | June 2018

As we left the lodge at dawn we heard lions calling, so dashed off in that direction. We found them near the airstrip in a mopane thicket, finishing off an impala carcass that we suspect they’d stolen from a leopard. As they left the thicket and walked into pools of light we enjoyed amazing viewing and photo shoots of all 12 lions, including two large males, females and juvenile cubs. Seeing them bathed in early morning sunlight diffused by morning mist was spectacular!
